SSP 2019 Annual Meeting

San Diego, USA 29, 30, 31 May 2019

SSP supporting memberIngenta and PCG will be exhibiting at SSP 2019 Annual Meeting. The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) 41st annual event takes place on 29 – 31 May in San Diego, USA. This year’s meeting will focus on scholarly communication, new technologies, markets, day-to-day operations in editorial and production offices, Plan S and other policies. It is aimed at librarians, academics, publishers, service providers, technologists, and others with a stake in how research is shared as we tackle tomorrow’s challenges and broaden our horizons.

The Ingenta family will be exhibiting on booth #105 and will be involved in two sessions:

1) Maximizing your niche – tips from specialized publishers

In this session Consumer habits and our experience of media on demand will be discussed. A panel moderated by Heather Lantz, Content Sales Team Manager, PCG will explore the trend for niche publishing in the general consumer market and relate to small, independent publishers passionate about their subject as well as specialized scholarly publishers. The panel will address how smaller publishers can build and leverage their brand successfully. They will provide insights into how they use their strengths to build their brand and explore some of the challenges they’ve had to overcome.

Moderator: Heather Lantz, Content Sales Team Manager, PCG
Panelist: American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics -AIAA, Michele Dominiak Sr. Manager, Publications Operations and Web Publishing
Panelist: Royal Society Publishing, Graham Anderson, Global Sales Manager

Panelist: Geological Society of London – GSL, Anne Davenport, Head of Sales, Marketing and Distribution

2) Considerations when planning a platform migration: advice from the front line

For scholarly publishers there inevitably comes a time when content must move to a different hosting platform. It’s a painful process and requires much planning and support. However, there are specific tasks platform providers and production teams can undertake to make the transition smoother. For one day only, this panel presentation brings together various platform experts to discuss strategies and tactics that may minimize some (but probably not all!) stress.
This lively discussion will not promote one platform over the other, nor will it advertise platform benefits. Rather, it is an effort to tear down proprietary walls and present collectively to the scholarly publishing community effective methods that promote the dissemination of content.
Ingenta will be one of the guest speakers for this.

Ingenta and PCG will be on booth #105.
